Who will decide and what are the criteria?

The Best Presentation Award decisions will be made by the Standing Committee Chairmen who will select one Oral and one Poster Award recipient from among the sessions and workshops sponsored by a particular Committee.

Applications will be assessed on clarity, presentation, originality of work, and significance.

Awards recognize the quality of the presentations - not the career achievements of the scientists.
